    The owl perches once again. It would not be a big deal if the owl didn't have class in the morning. The owl lays in a nest of strategically arranged blankets that sit precisely to her liking. She types away at her dying laptop Is it worth it to get up and get the charger...

    I Wanted To Be A Nurse....

    Well I went to college to be a nurse. It was a huge dream and I really wanted it so much. I ended up becoming a CNA and taking care of the elderly which is very hard work but yet very rewarding. I spent 4yrs taking care of our moms/dads and grandparents. I formed many bonds...

    I fell asleep at 8am

    while I was texting a friend and I didn't text him back till like 7 pm and he was like "Oh it's cool I just woke up." I'm so impressed right now. I can't believe I thought I was hard core. What's the latest you woke up?

    So, walking alone outside at 2am

    when a random guy comes up to me, holding a pack of paper-towels, and says "Excuse me, did you say a blood-covered man going this way?" At least I'm not the only one getting weird looks. I stood still for about 10 minutes listening and watching, but didn't see anything out of...

    I know for sure I'll be having an all nighter

    tonight. I'll be leaving home in two weeks to study abroad in France. So I thought I'd do something to relieve my mom of the stress she has and surprise her. Our garage, where her office is, is full of so much stuff, mostly unwanted stuff. It is fully packed and so dirty. But I...

    At 2am I went for a walk in the rain

    because I couldn't sleep and this creepy man came up to me and asked if I wanted candy. Did he think I was 8 or is he just that stupid? Of corse I'm not going to want ******* candy from a sketchy man in the dead of night. Bruh

    "The night is for passion.

    It’s for fanaticism, romance and trouble. It’s when your most tender, authentic and suppressed sides come out to play under the nonjudgmental eyes of the stars."

    While, like many others here,

    I derive pleasure in my nighttime ponderings, it is often times a very damning circumstance. 1. With farmer blood flowing through my body, I rise very early. And 2. for some odd reason, the day people are trying to convert me.

    So many people try to banish the night- at

    least its darkness. Turning on all the lights and trying to be able to see clearly all through it. As if we don't need darkness. What happened to having it in our lives? When did we bastardize the dark/light cycle? Our bodies thrive with some healthy darkness and I can barely...

    why do they call it being a "night owl".

    It's all about the silence,

    though to me "silence" has a different meaning. I love it when its all dark, while knowing that everyone is asleep, and it starts raining. I turn off all my room's lights, except for my desk lamp, and open the curtain and state outside, at the endless drops splashing against...

    if I haven't gone to sleep already, I become more awake, and it is increasingly difficult to even imagine sleep.

    I LOVE staying up at night!

    It so quiet and peaceful! No parents bothering me, no real reason to keep in contact with friends cause they are all sleep! Its just..the silence and so lovely. Reading a book under a lamp or just playing a game. No one is bothering me..
